    no scope
    Generally speaking, the act of killing someone in a first person shooter game with a one shot gun (sniper rifle, bolt action rifle, etc) without using a telescopic sight or sniper scope. Most commonly, the term is used to mean that you fired such a gun from the hip and killed someone with it, however it can also (debatably) mean that you pulled up iron sights on a sniper rifle / bolt action rifle and then killed someone that way. The term does not apply to shotguns, semi-automatic rifles (unless they can be scoped), or any automatic weapon.

    No scoping is generally viewed as an act of skill (or luck, depending on who you talk to and the mechanics of the game you're playing). This is because you are killing someone with one shot through a (usually) large crosshair and also risk exposing yourself if you miss. However, the amount of prestige that is attached to a single no scope depends on the distance and rate of success; i.e. if you no scope once and do this by killing a guy who you are literally next to, that doesn't take much skill, but if you continually no scope guys who are halfway across the map, that's some seriously good $#@! on your behalf. On a related note, no scope headshots get you some serious prestige if you can pull them off constantly.

    Yeah, I know what it is. My son is world ranked in a couple of those games. I thought you were talking about something else.

    In short.... yes I have. I don't generally like scoped weapons in games like COD and the like simply because I don't like losing my FOV. I do often get lucky with throwing random grenades in the air through.

    No reason I just wondered if you did that in real life.

    Well now wait a minute... in real life or in games? Seems an odd question to single me out for my own thread to ask if I've ever shot someone without a scope 'in real life'

    I thought he was talking about playing video games. Admittedly he wasn't.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset.

America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Um.....I'm pretty sure most people who play fsp games (which is like 90% of the high boy school population) know what no scoping is. I was just asking him because I knew he was in Iraq and gave the Urban Dictionary definition.
